I create SilkWire Jewelry which is JewelryArt 4 Your WellBeing--pieces that are created to adorn & assist the wearer in their outlook & wellness. They are Statement & Conversation Pieces for individual Free Thinkers who rock their own style & flair. I also write A Bird Blogs About Gems where the focus is on the benefits of gemstones, crystal & copper. I also talk about Life Gems.
Why did you become an Entrepreneur?
It was a natural transition--I was a professional dancer/singer/actress & as a performer you have to be a self-starter & self-motivator. You are your own boss as you are responsible for your talent & continued growth. You represent yourself at auditions, your professionality is on YOU. I always like holding the reins & being in charge. I am Free Thinker & Free Thinkers gotta work for themselves!
Why did you choose your business niche?
I have loved gemstones & jewelry since chilhood. I have always done things with my hands--knitting, crochet, beading with a loom when I was 12, sewing coming fulk circle to jewelry & gemstones. JewelryArt was an Intuitive & natural progression.
Most Exciting Life Experience?

I've also performed on Broadway, TV & Film, been a Master Teacher/Choreographer too so I have had soooooo many exciting Life Experiences & can't possibly choose one!!

“The man who stops advertising to save money is like the man who stops the clock to save time”
Why Is It... A man wakes up in the morning after sleeping in an advertised bed, washes with an advertised soap, shaves with an advertised razor, sits down and drinks advertised tea or coffee, drives to work in an advertised car and writes with an advertised pen. Then... He refuses to advertise, saying "Advertising doesn't work". But when his business fails, he finally advertises: "Business for Sale" - Anonymous
